What will the Sabres wear in the 2018 Winter Classic?

So the Sabres will for some reason, be the home team for this game and there's rumors that they will be using a throwback jersey.

Anyone else really hoping to see this?

Nothing, because the way this defense plays, the Rangers will undress them.

You laugh but in about 10 years they will bring back slug merchandise as a self aware hipster joke like the Islanders fisherman.

Would really like to see the Buffa-slug or the Red/Black Bull head.

Bulls head with the classic colors would be cool IMO.

Royal blue and gold originals, please.

The royal blue looks sooo much better than the current navy.

I think it will be the same jersey as 2008. Hopefully they sell the jersey. I've been waiting 9 years to buy the actual winter classic jersey.

Edit; We're home. Please be 1970 themed with laces

What about the orange and black Buffalo Bisons jerseys?

As much as I like the royal blue jerseys, I would love to see something new and exciting. Something different we haven't seen before.......but in blue and gold.

The goat head would have been so much better if they actually stuck with the colors of the Sabres. BLUE GOLD AND WHITE.


Not the stripes on the jersey but I am posting this for the color of the goat head.

Why did they ever go red and black?

Black/red slug is fitting. It looks a little like Louis CK.

I assume because some focus group told them that red and black were "edgy."

The Sabres were followers of a trend in the 90s by many new and existing sports franchises to go with red and black. It's unfortunate that it took them so long to ditch that fad and remember their true identity.

Please wear the agh. Black or White I don't care which ones. We had the most success as a franchise wearing those jerseys....one of our two cup runs and then of course 05-06 which was arguably the best overall team in Sabre history. It's been over 11 years since we last wore them, so it's long enough to be considered a throwback.

John Rigas owned Adelphia communications and that was their corporate colors.

I thought the Sabres wore red/black before Rigas bought the Sabres. Could have swore they introduced them at the old Aud at a ceremony after the last game at the Aud was played.

I'm hoping they use the blue they had for the jerseys from 1978-1980
